including one in maryland. the crisis has prompted the company, the new england compounding center, to recall the products and suspend operations. the scare has triggered multiple investigations, starting with the company that shipped the vials. >> what exactly is a compounding pharmacy? how are they licensed and supervised? does the food and drug administration have the resources and does it have the legislative authority to actually extend its oversight over these pharmacies? >> reporter: neec is based in massachusetts. it was supposed to be filling specific prescriptions for specific people, but the state's governor, deval patrick, says that wasn't the case at all. >> what they were doing instead is making big batches and selling them out of state as a manufacturer would. >> reporter: the incident manager from the centers for disease control says we're not out of the woods yet. healthcare providers are urging anyone who received a steroid injection for back pain or joint
8:08am
pain to watch for some key symptoms. fever, worsening headaches, back pain, and neurological problems similar to ones a stroke victim might have. if they develop, seek immediate medical care. cdc officials have already notified 12,000 patients who got the injections, but there are many more out there who haven't been reached yet. because the symptoms are taking longer to develop than expected, patients are urged to keep looking for signs of illness over the next few months. audrey barns, fox 5 news. . the redskins on fox 5 today. the burgandy and gold going up one of the biggest surprises in the nfl, the vikings, who have been impressive with second year quarterback christian ponder. he struggled in his rookie season, but this year he is leading team purple to a 4-0 record. with six touchdowns, the skins defense knows not taking the qb lightly would be a mistake.

8:15am
about an hour from now. thousands lined the route to watch the long, slow crawl. organizers say dispoit going about 2 miles per hour, the shuttle did make good time, but workers pulling the endeavour say it took a while to get to this point. >> we had to actually go through a bunch of rigorous tests to make sure that we were able to pull this weight. we had three months of testing to say, yes, we could do this. so we actually pulled more than what the endeavour in the program weighs. it's 292,000 pounds and we were over 300,000 pounds that we pulled. >> must be a proud moment for you as well. >> oh, absolutely. >> nervous? >> nervous, and i'll be a lot better once we're on the other side of manchester, for sure. >> total cost of endeavour's final journey, $10 million. just ahead on fox morning news, the killing of the u.s. ambassador to libya is back in the headlines, after the vice president claimed the white house never got requests for more security. a full report, coming up after the break. >> and a little later, we are getting a preview of fox news sunday and a look at the vice

. the attack on the consulate in libya continuing to make headlines. it has been more than a month since the american ambassador and three others were killed. now, as fox's molly henneberg reports, some senators say they are investigating the attack. >> reporter: first, the house of representatives started investigating the libya attack. now the senate just announced it's going to do the same. joe lieberman and susan collins say the american people deserve a full and fair accounting of how the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya unfolded. they continue in a statement saying, quote, we intend to examine the circumstances before, during and after the attack, including threat awareness. u.s. security needs for diplomatic personnel in benghazi and libya, and communications among the intelligence
8:20am
community, the state department, the defense department and the white house. we want to fully understand why the administration's initial public assessments of this attack were subsequently proven inaccurate. meanwhile, the white house and state department are fielding a lot of questions, after vice president biden said in the debate this week that, quote, we weren't told they wanted more security in libya. why wasn't he told? why wasn't the president told? here's what white house spokesman jay carney said about it. >> these are issues appropriately handled by security professionals at the state department. and that's what he was talking about. >> reporter: but one republican house member, who just returned from an investigative trip to libya, says the obama administration should have known that our facilities in libya needed more security. >> the leadership, a good president should be saying, my goodness, we were bombed in libya twice! what are we doing to improve security there? >> reporter: in washington,

8:26am
expected this morning. >> i know. i think everybody's pleasantly surprised. it's a good indication of what we're in for today. temperature rising, folks. so i think they will like that. let's get right to it and show you what is happening out there. satellite and radar composite showing very few clouds. we have a ridge of high pressure bringing us plenty of sunshine across the area. here's a look at yesterday's highs. 60 degrees at reagan international airport, 58 at dulles, 58 at bwi. these temperatures, some 9 to 10 degrees below the seasonal average. we are going to be a lot closer to that today. 53 degrees at dc, 48 at baltimore, 58 gaithersburg and that's the same for frederick. 54 degrees at culpepper. for today, mostly sunny skies. the one thing happening today are the winds. we've got a ridge of high pressure that's going start to move out. we have another system moving in from the west and what we call
8:27am
pressure gradient, tight pressure gradient between those two picking the winds up. winds are coming from the south, a nice warm wind flow, 10 to 15 miles an hour, gusting at 25 miles an hour. but overall, not bad. i know it's a big football game today for the redskins. they won't have to worry about any wet weather. >> okay. >> our viewers will not be cold sitting out there today, that's for sure. it's going to be very comfortable, albeit for the winds picking up a little bit. but we can't beat it for this time of year. i've got a little more of that to share into the week as well. >> because those winds were really gusting yesterday. you could feel it. it was chilly. >> it will be a little stronger today in the wind department. >> thanks a lot. appreciate it. the vice presidential debates were pretty testy. did you see them? the back and forth between vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan. let's give you some of the back and forth resaw on the recession, stimulus and sanctions on iran. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of
8:28am
sanctions. period. period. when governor romney's asked about it, he said we've got to keep these sanctions. when you say, well, you're talking about doing more. are you going to go to war? is that what you want to do? >> you want to prevent war. >> interesting thing is how they are going to prevent war, how they are going to prevent war if they say there's nothing more that they say we should do than what we've already done. >> i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin? we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said-- >> you did ask for stimulus money, correct? >> sure, he did. >> on two occasions, we advocated for constituents applying for grants. that's what we do for all constituents. >> i love that. >> and by the way, they talk about this great recession as if it fell out of the sky, like, oh, my goodness, where did it come from? it came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card at the same time for the prescription drug benefit and
8:29am
the credit card. a trillion dollar tax cut for very wealthy. i was there. i voted against them. i said, no, we can't afford that. and now all of a sudden these guys are so seized with the concern about the debt that they created. >> congressman ryan? >> let's not forget that they came in with one-party control. when barack obama was elected, they had all the control. they had the ability to do of their choosing and look at where we are right now. they passed the stimulus. the idea we could borrow $831 billion, spend it on special interest groups and it would work out fine, that unemployment would never get above 8%, it went above 8% for 433 months. they said if we passed the stimulus, it would grow at 4%. it's growing at 1.3. >> the vice presidential debate and upcoming presidential debate on tuesday, topics today on fox news sunday, just about half hour from now. fox's chris wallace is the host of the show and joins me now
8:30am
with a preview. good morning, chris. >> reporter: good morning. >> before we get to who your i want to get perspective from you on the upcoming week. second presidential debate is this week. polls clearly had romney winning the first one. however, vice president biden won it, again, according to the polls. does that in any way take off any pressure for president obama going into round 2, that biden won it for the democrats? >> reporter: absolutely not. you know, the history of these, there's a long history of vice presidential debates. we pay attention, they are fun, interesting, and they don't matter. people don't vote for the bottom of the ticket. they vote for the top of the ticket. my guess is by the time that we get to the town hall debate on tuesday, the biden-ryan will be largely forgotten. this will have to be won or lost by obama and romney, the running mates aren't going to make a difference. >> and you mentioned the town hall setting dis.d that setting in any way benefit one candidate over another? >> reporter: well, i think it's going to make it a little harder for obama. we keep hearing that obama is going to try to be more
8:31am
aggressive because he had what is generally now considered a lack luster first debate. but it's harder to make partisan attacks and go after the other guy when you're being asked questions not by reporters, but by real people. you know, when joe says i want to ask you a question about my healthcare or i've been out of work for six months, people don't like to hear one guy taking shots at the other. they want to hear them relate. and that's why incidentally, i think that this debate could be a real opportunity, not saying it will be, but could be for romney, because romney has been portrayed successfully by the obama campaign, if you believe the polls, as this kind of unfeeling, out of touch rich guy. now, if he's able to break through that and be empathetic, when the bill clinton, i feel your pain, i think that could cause a lot of people to rethink how they see m rough. he's now got to step up and do it, but it's an opportunity for him. >> you bring up a good point, chris. i wonder in this setting if
8:32am
we'll see a different president obama, based on the performance we saw in the first debate. >> reporter: there's no question. he'll be more aggressive. if he doesn't, i think he's in terrible trouble. he's got to be more aggressive in defending his record, more assertive in talking about where he would take the country. there's been very little talk about his second term agenda and he's got to be more aggressive in going after romney and one of the big arguments now is that romney, they say, is moving to the center. he's shaving off some of the hard, conservative edges of his policies. obama's got to call him on that. >> issue that came up in the vice presidential debate, i've got to assume is going to c up in tuesday's debate, the white house, the obama camp under fire for how the administration handled the terrorist attack in libya that killed the u.s. ambassador and three others. how much is that situation, chris, going to hurt president obama? >> reporter: well, we don't -- first of all, we don't know it will come up in the town hall meeting, because it's real people. you can't be sure that they will ask about libya. it will certainly come up six days later in the foreign policy debate and be a huge issue.
8:33am
and, you know, my feeling is that it's less important in and of itself and what it says, or at least what the romney campaign is trying to say it says, about obama's foreign policy, about political manipulation, and interestingly enough, obama had really been running on foreign policy as a strong suit because of the fact that he had killed bin laden, because of the fact that al-qaeda had been degraded. but now with al-qaeda apparently, at least on the fringes, involved in the attack that killed these four americans and the information we found out this week, that people on the ground in libya had been asking for security, for more help, and it was denied by the state department, it's not going to be quite as much of a strong point for barack obama. >> and will you be talking about libya on your show today? >> reporter: we'll be talking about libya, the debates, state of the race. we've got two absolutely top officials of both campaigns. for the democrats, senior strategist david axelrod for obama. and for mitt romney, the senior advisor to his campaign, ed
8:34am
gillespie. this should get very interesting. >> excellent. catch fox news sunday at 9:00 a.m. right after our newscast. chris, as always, we enjoy talking to you here. >> reporter: thanks, laura. do you have plans to see a movie this weekend? in our movie reviews, a history lesson of sorts, hollywood director ben affleck out with a movie based on the true story of the rescue of six americans during the iranian hostage crisis in 1979. the facts recently became public and kevin mccarthy is up next with his review of argo, when fox 5 morning news continues. we'll be right back. playay with a stick. take away their bikes and theyey'll still find a way to gt where they're going. but if take you away early childhood education... slash k-12 funding... and cut college aid for middle class families ... they won't go far. yet that's exactly what mitt romney wants to do... ...to pay for a $250,000 tax break for multi-millionaires. if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses.

but he's really creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in us history. he's adding almost as much debt
8:37am
as all 43 previous presidents -- combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed. much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money, he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. . we are checking out three movies in this week's buzz binn. kevin mccarthy is excited about all three. one is a horror flick that has left him shaken. and as he tells us, another is an historical event, another that became declassified.
8:38am
joining us to talk about all things movies, kevin mccarthy. >> it's a great movie week, every movie is interesting. >> let's start off talking about ben affleck and his movie, "argo." >> what a story. this story took place in 1980. it wasn't declassified until bill clinton in 1997. the fact they had to keep this secret for 27 years, obviously this takes place based on a true story at the height of the iranian revolution. during the hostage crisis, obviously 52 americans were taken hostage, but they didn't know that six americans had escaped, you know, on top of the 522. i went to the canadian ambassador's house and were hiding there. and the cia knew about this. ben affleck's character goes into iran and poses as a fake movie guy. they create a fake movie called "argo," get a fake producer, fake director, an actual script, make press for the movie, and his goal is to pose themselves
8:39am
as a canadian film crew who are on a location scout for the new movie "argo." and the intention of this film, i started doing research and learning about this story before i saw the movie. whether or not you know the outcome of what happens in this film, you will be on the edge of your seat the entire time. it's watching something like "titanic." even if you know the ending, you always think to yourself, i hope they miss the iceberg this time! you're always thinking things will change this. movie will be nominated for best picture. he will get a best director nomination, 100% sure. 4 1/2 out of 5. see argo. very original. what about seven psych paths? fun, crazy? >> if you saw embruge, a highly violent, funny, interesting movie. this film is a great idea. colin ferrell's character is a struggling screen writer. his two friends, here's what they do. they kidnap dogs, okay? then they return the dogs to
8:40am
their owners to get the reward money. you will laugh. it's very violent, very vulgar, but i really enjoyed it. not as good as his previous movie, but very solid. 4 out of 5. and the last movie, this one is scary, a little creeped out by scary movies. >> first of all, this is not an exaggeration. as the film ended last night, you would see my jaw drop and tears in my eyes. not because i'm sad. it's just a shock and terror that a film can come out in this day and age, that we've seen a story like this a million times, where a family moves into a house and something in that house haunts the family. but it is so original. the idea that ethan hawk's character is a struggling author, wants to piece together a murder mystery that has not been solved by this town's police, and he uncovers one of the most sick, most twisted and disturbing stories you'll ever see coming alive on screen. it is ambitious, original, highly scary.
8:41am
i jumped out of my seat at least 10 times. >> wow, okay! >> and scared. not cheesy scares. they earn the jump scarce. you'll be flipping out. i gave this movie a 4 out of 5. very, very scary. every movie this week is worth seeing. go see all three of them. they are all fantastic! >> okay. >> seriously, "argo," ben affleck, wow. wow. i cannot tell you how great this movie is. >> cool, kevin. great to see you. >> follow me on twitter,@bdtreviews. tweet me this weekend. i want to know how scared you were after you saw "sinister," because i was flipped out. >> kevin, good to see you. back to you at the desk. >> love kevin mccarthy. greatest reviews. just ahead in sports, a big loss for the yankees. not only did they lose the game against the tigers, derek jeter out for the rest of the series? he was in pain after breaking his ankle. we'll have the details on that. >> plus, the end of the season for the nats. gwen, do we have to re-live it? >> really sad, but we've got good news in the weather
8:42am
